    Weaving tales of the everyday world transformed into an unrecognizable place, where reason no longer exists and logic ceases to explain the workings of the universe, Clive Barker provides the stuff of nightmares in packages too tantalizing to resist. This first volume contains the short stories : "The Book of Blood," "The Midnight Meat Train," "The Yattering and Jack," "Sex, Death, and Starshine," and "In the Hills, the Cities,"

    After listening to these stories I went on an aggressive search for everything that Clive Barker had released through Audible. He is a Master Story teller. I still have his stories in my head! Life is so full of the everyday... Barker knows how to take you away. But who knows where he is going to take you. AWESOME.

    Although Stoker did not invent the vampire, the novel's influence on the popularity of vampires has been singularly responsible for many theatrical, film and television interpretations since its publication. Required listening for any fan of the genre!

    What disappointed you about Dracula?

    I never realized that the entire story was completely composed of excerpts from all the characters diaries. Makes me wonder as to how the character Dracula became so famous?! Reviews should have pointed that out... It is 100% readings from diaries. No story. No action. Just Diary! Hence Diar--rhea

    Story
    (200)

    In his hugely influential and tempestuous career, Robert E. Howard created the genre that came to be known as sword and sorcery - and brought to life one of fantasy's boldest and most enduring figures: Conan the Cimmerian, reaver, slayer, barbarian, king. This volume gathers together three of Howard's longest and most famous Conan stories.

    Kirk says: "Awesome! Crom and Steel! Long live Conan!"

    Every since I was a kid, I loved the Conan movies... But I was way off! The storylines of the movies were only a drop in a giant bucket of the vast world and adventures of Conan! Amazing story, Incredible performance. GREATNESS!
    I have read in reveiws that this is not written in a modern style. If that is true, it doesn't take away from the stories, and... Thank Crom, because tales like these will live forever!
